Yah. I would just noodle around, not play copyrighted stuff. Goal is to have a banter-based show with a few licks thrown in for good measure.

This is the LockPickingGuitarPickupMaker and today we had a bit of a breakout moment after reading about proper lockpicking technique. You have to be delicate with it, especially with higher-end locks like the one on my shop's front door.


I can now pick any lock that is present in my household. When all else fails I can partner up with plommer and become a bike thief, or a home invader. Plommer would tell me when the old ladies in his neighbourhood have their doctor's appointment and I can swoop in and get the good jewellery.

After reading this thread and watching a few YouTube videos on lock picking,I convinced myself anyone could do it.So I went looking for a lock picking set ,unsuccessfully.Then I took an old key and grinded it down trying to make a bump key.
After 15 minutes of futility I got out my grinder and cut the fucking lock off

Think without that little tension wrench it’s tough to know how much pressure to apply.
Also I got the attention span of a monkey

Yes, the amount of tension is critical, that was part of my breakout moment today.

I do feel like I've accomplished something (even though what I really should've been doing is packing boxes. Moving in a week.)

Those guys on the internet make it look so easy,I also tried to make shims out of a pop can and unlock a Master padlock ,which are apparently easy to bypass.
No luck
Was a lock I used to lock up a canoe outside and somehow I lost the key.Maybe it being a rusty mess made it harder.

My other half goes through periods of new hobbies. Last winter was lock picking. He had a whole set of tools and locks to practice on. I really didn't think this was a common "hobby."

It's a guy thing. We're fucking dumb.

I'm technically an Orange Belt picker as per the u/lockpicking subreddit.


I will submit video proof of my ability and get my "belt" (flair added to my username).

Next step is the green belt. (And I believe that I already own a purple-belt-level lock, but that's way beyond my skill level right now.)

Has he gone into Rubik's Cubes?

Definitely a male dominated past time,not one of the videos I watched was there a woman even in the background.
I believe it stems from being a little boy knowing the Old Man kept his booze and good porn under lock and key.
Wasn’t successful as a child or an adult in picking a lock
Might try bomb making

My mom's boyfriend in the early 90's kept GIF porn on floppy disks in a lockable floppy storage thingie. It was easily defeated with a paper clip and a screwdriver. That was my lockpicking white belt right there.

Once upon a time, I dated a locksmith. He was absolutely terrible at picking locks.
